Wealthy Affiliate Changes Lives of Loved One'sSo proud of my Mom...don't know if you saw her latest post:Who Would Have Thunk?Just a few short months ago, my Mom had never Googled anything in her life.She had never been on Facebook. Or LinkedIn. Or Twitter. Or Google Plus.She didn't know how to add an attachment in an email.She had never taken a photo on her Smartphone.She was scared to do anything on her laptop in case she broke she something.She didn't know what a URL was.And look at her no

Hi EveryoneToday, 18th July, we celebrate Mandela Day in South Africa. Making a DifferenceIt's not a Public Holiday in South Africa, but a day on which we dedicate sometime in our day to give 67 minutes of our time to Make a Difference.Latest news on my side is that I was appointed the Public Officer for the Non Profit Organisation, Physical Literacy for Children (PLC) yesterday. PLC was established to offer Physical Literacy to underprivileged and Special Needs children. PLC uses the curricu

Heya EveryoneJust a quick one to let you know I'm still here and rooting for you all.How's it Going Your Side?On my side, the school holidays have been fun... and a balancing act (as expected). Although I've been very inactive on the Wealthy Affiliate platform, I have managed to keep up with my publishing schedule on my sites.I've published 32 posts this month so far and have a few interviews still to publish and ideas for posts that I just haven't found time to write yet.

There is a Season for EverythingAnd my season as an Ambassador at Wealthy Affiliate is drawing to a close.I will most likely have to let go of the Super Affiliate Challenge for this year as well and come back to it next year. Because I've taken a position as a Business Development Consultant for the next 6 months.There is a Reason for EverythingAnd this is mine.My family needs me to step up to the plate because I'm not making enough income yet with my online business to pay my half of my Dad's

Heya SWAGgers one and all...With Month 5 about to start, I'm wondering...How was Month 4 for you?Alas, I have not been able to complete all my Tasks because I've been swamped with guest posts to publish this month. So sadly, what's fallen by the wayside is Site Comments. I just didn't have the time to leave comments and call for comments. I have been a lot better at sharing on social media so I'm not beating myself up about it. I can only do as much as I can do.This was my Month 4As you can s

A Tribute to My FatherWhenever I think of my Father these days, I get choked up. Because he's in the end stages of Lewy Body Disease and a shadow of his former self. He is in Frail Care as he can no longer walk or feed and clothe himself .He doesn't know the difference between left or right, forward or back, he doesn't know which day of the week it is. He appears to recognise us at first when we visit him but there's no way to be sure as he's not able to communicate as he did before. He talks,

Who wants a Free Plagiarism Checker?If you're publishing guest posts or contributed posts, this becomes a MUST.After all, who wants to land up with duplicate content on their site?I'm sure by now you all know that Wealthy Affiliate offers us all a free plagiarism Checker in Site Content as we publish our posts.However, when you're working with a new client, you may want to check for plagiarism a little earlier in the game (like the moment they send you their content).This is the Free Tool Lynne

I received this question from Ann @Queenredgie and it was way too complicated to answer in a comment. So for those who are interested, here you go. I've delved into some stats in Google Analytics. I don't do this often but it's a good exercise to do every and now and then to see what's working and what's not. So Thanks Ann, for getting me to look at some Stats.The first part of the question is quite easy to answer.Which Social Media PIatforms do I use most?If Wealthy Affiliate was a Social Medi

Paid Guest Posting - Yes or No?The problem with being a people pleaser is that it's really hard to say NO. I just said NO to someone who sent me a guest post to publish and I feel like a really horrible person right now.Saying No and Meaning ItThis was the first time I've rejected a post. But I just couldn't do it. I just couldn't hit that publish button.Because...The post wasn't targeted to my audience at allIt was blatantly promotional (more like a sponsored post)It wasn't well writtenIt had
